Q: Are there clear overlays of current geography with cities as well as political boundaries? Is there and index that you can query for "this is the archeological site I am seeing, what happened here?"
This book only contains maps keyed to Biblical times. There are no overlays or maps containing current day political boundaries. There is an index of people and places, and a separate map index, but they are based on the ancient historical names for the geographic locations. You can find out the history of a particular geographic location, you just have to know the ancient names for the area.
Q: No Page Numbers?? The one review of this atlas stated that the book had no page numbers. When I look inside the atlas at the Christianbook.com website I can definitely see page numbers. So, were the page numbers added after the reviewer posted the review? Was there an initial version that did not have page numbers?
This item does have page numbers on the top, middle of each page.
